MITCNC Event
Book Discussion: The Exceptions
May 21 - Peninsula

Join with a small group of other MIT alumni to discuss Kate Zernike's controversial new book, The Exceptions. Zernike's narrative tells the story of a small group of women faculty who banded together in the 1990's to demonstrate inequity in the MIT School of Science. In the best tradition of scientists, they made their case based on careful measurement, as described in an excerpt published in Technology Review:

In order to foster discussion, the event will be limited to 12 participants. Please register by May 10th.
